Dear Hein,

I’m afraid my comment is not much help for you, but I wanted to tell you that your thread helped me a LOT ! Without meaning that spitful at all, but thank god you and your already great design got that generic “everything in your theme sucks” respond! Some of Kailoon’s responses sometimes make me almost have a nervous tearful break down because I get that all the time. I make changes, I get other reasons, I change that, I get the old reasons again… And move the theme to the trash. Sometimes it makes me feel like I’m either a complete noobette, blind or he really, really hates me. But now there’s hope!

Well, ehm, thanks for listening, self-help guys and gals.
Sorry for whining!

Best luck to you Hein, I’m sure we will see that theme online soon!

Always remember never to give up ;). it happens to all of us all the time. Nothing we can do except to learn from it and improve yourselves

Well, first of all, the sections that remind you of documentation, copyright of images, etc., that’s standard for every rejection email so don’t get too thrown by that.

Secondly, I think it’s a pretty nice template although I’m not loving your choice of font. It’s too difficult for me to read especially with so much going on on the page as it is.

There are a few alignment issues like with the search box at the top. The “sign up, contact, login” line looks too far up next to the search box.

He was nice enough to give you a few screenshots of what he’s seeing so that’s pretty cool of him to do that for you to reference.

Not sure why he said the slider isn’t working but maybe there was a glitch when he was viewing it or something.

Thanks Jami, i’m not saying I don’t agree with all his feedback but a lot of points doesn’t make any sense. Working on the points that are true right now but i need advice about the other points

Hey You’ll,

Just got my latest wordpress theme rejected by Kailoon and now i need some help to understand this rejection.

This it the theme in question: http://machtastic.hein.ms/

Now this is the comment from Kailoon, i don’t mind that my theme is rejected only I believe some points aren’t correct.

We’re sorry, your item Machtastic – Commercial Wordpress Theme has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

This File Requires Some Improvements / Fixes

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this template. Unfortunately, due to our high standards, your template has been declined.

  • 1) Your template has a good start but, as we have high standards, you will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as graphics, layout, colors, etc. (not true)
  • 2) Overall template typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for ThemeForest. (not true)
  • 3) The template needs improvements in visual hierarchy primarily using typographic elements such as headings. (not true)
  • 4) Please use wp_enqueue to load jquery to avoid duplicate libraries loaded into the theme, and avoid plugins conflict. You need to de-register the jquery when it is not in admin page to avoid conflict with plugins.
  • 5) https://skitch.com/kailoon/rjccq/machtastic
  • 6) https://skitch.com/kailoon/rjccu/machtastic-black-ops-breaks-many-records-in-england
  • 7) I think there is still room to grow especially for the headerarea. (not true)
  • 8) The slider simply not working. (not true)

Before resubmitting, please also ensure your template meets the following conditions.

- Coding is current with today’s standards - Template documentation uses our template or one of higher design quality - You’ve obtained licensing for all template sources for copyright

Note: This doesn’t mean your template doesn’t meet the above conditions. I’m just asking that you be sure your template does to avoid being declined.

Current Coding Standards Code should be well formatted for easy reading and editing including at least minimal code commenting.

Lists should be used appropriately and tables should not be used for anything but tabular data. Examples of using lists properly can be seen here: http://files.jremick.com/ThemeForest/List-Examples.txt

Documentation Template Our documentation template can be found here: http://blog.themeforest.net/site-news/building-better-template-documentation/ (html documentation is available)

This is an example only and your documentation must include more in-depth information on HTML and CSS structures, JavaScript and PHP usage and template sources. You may use a documentation with improved design if you wish. Text files will not be accepted.

sources for copyright Images from movies, products, people is not allowed in screenshot and final download. (not true, as long as the images aren’t inside the download package then it’s allowed. When this point is true then envato must remove 60% of it’s themes)

You can use it for demo site, but make sure you have the permission from the author.

The best way to have good images is from flickr with CC license, but still, you have to contact the authors to get the permission for redistribution / resell. Make sure you include the permission in the documentation as credit for the creators.

Let me know if you guys are seeing this different then me. I’m really confused about this since it costs me a lot of time to check everything and then i get this.

i do prefer an answer from a staff member about this. because I don’t think you will be notified if you get a refund.

Because I’m having a difference of $15.25 from yesterday evening and this morning. This amount has to be somewhere.

It’s not much and i don’t care about the refund but i want to get notified if this is happening
Shouldn’t you send an email to support if you want a response from the staff, rather than post it in the forums?

why shouldn’t i post this also in the forums?, maybe more authors are having the same problem.

I’ve got a question about refunds. Just noticed a small difference in my sales and was wondering if somebody claimed and received a refund.

Do we authors get notified is a refund has been given or does envato just gives it back without letting the author know.

our paypal account is limited. we only can ask for a refund. what happens if we refund our earnings to envato? will they put it back in our account? we want to get the money back because the current paypal account is made with a person that move the address he is living at, and paypal blocked our account.

Only thing i can recommend is to contact Envato support.
